I’m running a local DNS server on my laptop, best idea. Why is that not a common practice?

@julienxx because it is slow.

In fact, any distro will probably run a caching resolver (so in essence a dns server) mostly via systemd-resolve as of today.

But a real, root querying resolver? You essentially need to lookup every domain from scratch, which is much much slower than just using one that already has it in the cache

@sirjofri @reto oh no not a root querying resolver I’m just running a local recursive resolver
